The basic idea of faithfulness is firmness or certainty. “The core of this Hebrew concept is firmness, reliability or steadfastness. To believe is to hold on to something firmly, with conviction and confidence. It is implied that steadfastness is sought in the object believed, and in laying hold of the object, the believer himself will become steadfast.” We can be faithful because of God's faithfulness.
